Between 15 and 20% of women will experience Post Natal Depression(PND)

This can occur at anytime during the first year after birth. It can happen after any pregnancy and has physical, emotional and psychological symptoms. PND can vary in severity and symptoms, although there are some common symptoms that may be experienced. It can be hard to tell what is PND and what is exhaustion.

If you would like to use our service, we will work with you to decide what service will best suit you and your family/whanau.  Our services are FREE and CONFIDENTIAL.
